Apologies To Ralph

Guardian Unlimited Books | By genre | Interview: Judy Blume

But for those of us who grew up with it, its significance can perhaps best be measured by one odd and lasting side-effect of its popularity: the consigning of the name Ralph - which is what Michael memorably decides to name his penis - to the dustbin of history. "I've heard from several young men who say: 'Judy, how could you do this to me?'" Blume admits. "I apologise to all of them. It's nothing personal."

Judy Blume is too funny. I didn't particularly like "Forever," but that little detail has never left me. My grandfather was named Ralph.
